Product Overview

Easy to install ventilation for shrink-wrapped boats.

Trapped moisture and heat build-up in a shrink wrapped boat can be a disastrous recipe for mold and mildew. Proper ventilation is required to keep this damaging growth at bay. Dr. Shrink has designed these louvered vents to make venting shrink wrap jobs easier. These self-piercing durable plastic vents puncture and seal themselves to tensioned shrink wrap material. The seal keeps out the snow and rain while allowing moisture to escape. The louvers keep out rodents and birds so that there are no surprises in the spring when the boat is unwrapped. Save yourself the headache and time of a nasty clean-up by venting shrink wrapped boats with an easy to install louvered vent.
